Neva Patterson

Actress

Born - 10 February 1920, Nevada, Iowa, USA
Died - 14 December 2010

Sharp-faced, dark-haired, dark-eyed actress, often seen in shrewish character roles. After a spell as a New York hotel singer, she achieved her ambition of becoming an actress in post-war years, with a Broadway debut in 1947. Films often cast her as spinsters or rejected women, and they remained secondary to her stage career. But, after TV work from 1949, she made her screen debut in Taxi (1953). Later film appearances included The Solid Gold Cadillac (1956), Desk Set/His Other Woman (1956), An Affair to Remember (1957), Too Much Too Soon (1958), The Spiral Road (1961), David and Lisa (1962), Dear Heart (1964), Counterpoint (1967), Skin Game (1971), All the President's Men (1976), The Buddy Holly Story (1978), Star 80 (1983), All of Me (1984), and a host of TV movies, culminating in Deadline Madrid (1988), her last. She died after suffering complications from hip surgery.
